Well, they put the link for Microsoft's so-called 'Game Content Usage Rules' and all that, so maybe no. But then microsoft could just do this: We can revoke this limited-use license at any time and for any reason without liability to you.

Man, real cool mod. It still have some fails, but i played a lot of times and is great! A suggestion. I played halo few times in xbox, i don't have the game, but i love the history of the halo universe. Well, here come the suggestion. In the trailer deliver hope,of Halo Reach, in the combat scenes, we could see something like an armour or exo esqueleton fighting in the side of the USNC. Sure that someone knows the name of the unit, i love that you put this unit in a next version :P if this is possible, of course...

It is called the cyclops in halowars. It was a mining suit originally I believe. It has them in the book "Fall of Reach" as well.

I was always impressed at how well Halogen captured the essence of the universe. The atmosphere feels more like Halo than some of the more recent Bungie games...
